Haim plays the Coca-Cola Roxy April 28
Sisters Esta, Danielle, and Alana draw from life in music
Indie pop outfit, Haim blends a range of musical stylings into a full-tilt rock ’n’ roll sound that at once fresh and filled with nostalgia. The trio features sisters Esta, Danielle, and Alana who got an early start as performers playing in a cover band fronted by their father. Fusing melodies reminiscent of ’70s rock with ’80s pop percussion, and harmonies inspired by ’90s R&B, Haim’s trademark sound can be attributed to the group’s lifelong attachment to musicianship. Fans headed to see Haim live for the first-time may be in for a surprise: The group’s two studio albums, Days Are Gone and Something to Tell You (Columbia/Sony) put slick pop song writing and production front and center. Live, the band shows off a rock star swagger that creates a wholly new experience that’s every bit as distinct as Haim’s studio recordings.
